Advertisement Control
 

new advertising hoardingThere are separate regulations as to whether or not permission is needed to put up advertisement hoardings or any other form of advertisement.

 

The law regarding the display of adverts is very complex and you are advised to get advice or contact the Development Management before going ahead.
 
Any applications are processed in the same way as other planning applications.
 
 
The Council can grant consent for a period of five years for those adverts which need formal permission but there are many categories which are exempt and do not need permission. Most illuminated adverts need consent.
 

How to access this service

 
 
The Council can challenge any advertisement put up with deemed consent, requiring it to be removal if it is considered to have a detrimental effect on the appearance of the area or on public safety. The owner has a right of appeal.
 
A Council cannot control the content of adverts.
 
If you would like to comment or complain about the content of an advert, contact the Advertising Standards Agency
